Denim Field Service cap

Article about: I bought this at an estate auction last night. It is different than the other Garrison hats I got there. This one is more of a denim material, and I cannot identify the buttons on the front.

    Default Denim Field Service cap

    I bought this at an estate auction last night. It is different than the other Garrison hats I got there. This one is more of a denim material, and I cannot identify the buttons on the front. The style/shape, I have been told, is kind of like a British? winter hat?? The inside is named (hard to make out, but Sgt. .....). There is also the word COLLETT and a very faint date which looks like 1941. To me, this really looks like a WWI Garrison hat! Just looking for some info on this one! thanks

    British WW2 Field service cap.

    See my thread on the forum about these caps here

    The buttons on yours are "General Service" pattern.

    Cheers, Ade.

    great! Thanks Ade! One more question--I am THINKING of selling it (not sure yet). I tried to do some research on eBay for prices/values, but there were none listed on ebay! Is this cap hard to find or rare? I would think if they were standard issue they should be fairly common, but I don't know much about the British WWII stuff. I will also try to research the Collette sp? maker--I'm assuming they are in Britian?? Thanks again for the help and your discussion on the cap is dead on--EXACTLY what mine is!

    They are a British maker. J COLLETT. Well known maker of Army and RAF caps.

    These caps are not as common as they used to be. Like all good WW2 militaria, supply is drying up. I would except to pay around 25/$35 for one.

    Cheers, Ade.
